The Flaminio Village Camping is one of those sites that is like Marmite – you will love it or dislike it!

First things first. Finding the site is easy – just a couple of miles from the GRA (Rome ring road). Leave the ring road at junction six and follow the signs for Flaminio. There is then a fork in the road – keep left. There are brown camping signs to follow, so it is easy.

A large motorhome pitches with the coaches! We have done that before!

At reception – where various languages are fluently spoken – I asked for a large pitch. The receptionist contacted another of member of staff who said it would be OK. We were then shown a tarmac area, (coach park, but with hook up) or a more conventional pitch, set amongst half a dozen or so “permanent tents”. We took the latter.

Some pitches are very close together…

Many of the pitches at Flaminio Village Camping are very close together and the camping area is more like an aire or a sosta than a campsite. We had more space however in the tent area!

So, what’s good and bad at the Flaminio Village Camping?

Flaminio Village Camping

Spotlessly clean toilet and shower block with piped music!

  • Easy to find
  • Very easy access to Rome via the urban train and metro
  • Free WiFi
  • Excellent – repeat, excellent toilet/shower facilities
  • Swimming pool
  • Train/bus/attraction tickets available on site
  • Shop
  • Pizzeria
  • Restaurant
  • Swimming pool
  • Immaculately kept
  • Courtesy vehicle to run you from the centre of the site to the gates!

…and the not so good….

  • Aircraft noise
  • Dogs barking – possibly a nearby dog’s home or pound – choice of pitch may avoid this!

We do not know where the sound of barking dogs originated from, but it was constant.

Worth noting, in the past, we have stayed at Camping Tiber and also Happy Camping when visiting Rome. Due to location and easy access to Rome, Flaminio Village Camping is our favourite.

Access to Rome from the Flaminio Village Camping

Access to Rome is easy. The urban train stop is a few minutes walk away. Change at Flaminio onto the Metro system. A 24 hour ticket, covering the urban train, Metro, tram and bus costs seven euro. Our suggestion for what to see and do is here, with photo’s!

There is also a shopping centre across the road with a Carrefour supermarket.

The Flaminio Village Camping website is available here.
